    I hope the UFC does buy Pride. Then we will finally see the best of the best fight each other and real worldwide MMA rankings can be formed.

    in the short run it would be great...but a monopoly is the worst thing for MMA in the long run

    Fedor vs Crocop 2 in the cage? :eek4:

    I don't care about a monopoly, I want to see the best fighters fight the best fighters.

    you know its bad for the fighters economically if UFC owns both organizations but because there are so many more popping up and more money flying around then ever before i dont think its as big of a concern. On the big bright side there are a ton of matchups that can now be made that we could only previously speculate about.




    its like two super heros fighting, in the beggining only fanboys could speculate, then they had crossovers and it was like :eek3:


    bad analogy :hs:

    It's not a monopoly at all. With EliteXC on Showtime and IFL on Fox Sports Net there will still be a lot of money available to fighters who don't want to be under the UFC/Pride umbrella.

    Yes, but it was posted by the admin, and subfighter is a pretty well known site, so they must have at least some credibility.

    I dont think UFC buying Pride is as bad as people think. I think Dana realizes what fighters need to be paid
